Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management ranked No. 62 in the nation in Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine’s sixth annual “2012 Best Undergrad B-Schools.”
The overall ranking is in the top half of all schools on the list. The Sellinger School was also ranked No. 33 in academic quality, No. 50 in student satisfaction, and received an “A+” in facility quality.
“The Sellinger School is consistently recognized among the nation’s most respected schools of business,” said Karyl B. Leggio, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “As our curriculum continues to evolve and focus on innovation, I'm confident that accolades similar to this honor from BusinessWeek will continue.”
In the feedback collected from a student satisfaction survey used to help determine the Sellinger School’s ranking, students noted the intimate class sizes, the quality faculty, and the emphasis on community service and experiential learning as positive experiences.
Loyola is the only private university in Maryland ranked by BusinessWeek. Also included in the rankings were the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management, the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce, the University of California Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, and Boston College’s Carroll School of Management.
